    wall rebuild!

    So as I getting ready to rebuild my wall and I started thinking about how I was going to stack my subs vertically cus before I had them across the bottom with the port across The top of the box.. Now I'm going sub's on passenger side and port on drivers but they are going to have to be staggered or offset.

    My question is if the passenger's sub should be on the bottom or top???

    I'm going to build the front baffle so I can switch them either way but what do you think is the better way and why?

    If your subs are all going on the right side, they're all the passenger's subs.

    Maybe I don't understand what you're asking...

    Oh... I get it now. Sorry bout that.

    Like you have it would be my choice. If you flip em, the the sub on the right could be too close to the back of the seat/head rest. Although, I don't have any idea what sort of seats you have or how far back they will be.

    Re: wall rebuild!

    Probably wont make a difference really if you port extends the height of the wall. but as he said^^ the headrest thing would be the one thing to consider

    Re: wall rebuild!

    Thing I'm thinking about is the driver distance to the mic.. If I lower one and move the other off to the side maybe they will be similar?... Although I can't fit them directly above another anyways.

    Plus I am thinking about the one closer to the port is going to unload differntly then the lower one against the box walls... Again nothing I can do about it

    Only way to find out what is loudest is to build, test, rebuild, test...

    Nobody can tell you ahead of time what will be the loudest.
